My eyes just about popped out of my head when I show a show of theirs on the big board. Who knew? Thirty in all on LMA > http://archive.org/details/Minutemen

Listening to http://archive.org/details/minutemen1983-03-09..flacf

I knew - thanks to other posters back in the day. And I agree with jerlouvis re losing out on d boon. fortunate I got to see him back when - early thru mid-80's were a great time period to catch touring acts in small clubs.

It's stupid because they are the Minutemen,but I always wished they were the 3 or 4 Minutemen on more of their catalog.Mike and D.Boon are in fine form on Mutiny in Jonestown.

Cast off
Me in these ropes
I'm one knot
Tangled in the heap
I know it's a paradox
With my dreams
I know it's a paradox
With my dreams

The ship's creaking
Taking on bullshit
I fucking scream
Jump ship

D. Boon was an interesting and talented guy,we got cheated when he died.

>3 or 4 Minutemen...

I hear you, and that is why having them on LMA is so cool b/c a show is really like one long song.

Much is made of punk music and its ethics, but so many of the musicians under its banner were just being derivative. These guys were the real deal.

The Blue Note show you link to is excellent.

How cool is this internets thing? The whole doc 'We Jam Econo: The Story of the Minutemen' is online for the curious > https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HmKGusadv08

btw- Mike Watt played on the latest Stooges album (Ready To Die).

That's a interesting thought that their show is like one long song.

I would have to agree that more than most genres punk suffered from a lack of creativity.I also find the level of musicianship lacking across the genre,but as you said these three guys were top flight.

Each day I am reminded how mind blowing this internet thing is.I hope anyone who isn't familiar with the documentary will check it out.It's a shame a band with such fine music can go so unrecognized.

Mike has been playing with Iggy for a while now and the band sounds great.I caught part of a live show from some festival on tv a few months back.

umm... I think the 9/21/85 is great and sounds good until the end when D Boon breaks a string and it slips. Also 5/13 /85 is very strong too.
